azek shingles



AZEK Siding, which is made from a state-of-the-art proprietary engineered polymer, offers popular styles along with the performance and low-maintenance benefits of rot-proof PVC building materials. The company’s Shingle and Board and Batten offer moisture-resistance with no rotting, splintering, warping or swelling from excessive moisture and are insect-resistant. AZEK siding is designed for paint to dry quickly with enhanced paint adhesion and lasting performance due to its PaintPro technology. The company claims that PaintPro results in less chipping, peeling, and cracking. Lifetime warranty included. 




The Versatex Canvas Series cellular PVC trim combines warm, woodgrain finishes with four moisture-resistant profiles: WP4, Stealth Beadboard, 4-inch Crown Molding, and Bed Mold. All profiles are available in Black Cherry, Macore, Walnut, Amber, and Weathered Grey finishes, and a color-matched touch-up kit is included with each order. For use on porch ceilings, accent walls, indoor applications, and more, the Canvas Series comes in a 16-foot length for the crown and bed mould profiles, and 18-foot for the stealth bead and WP4. 


DaVinci Roofscapes


DaVinci Roofscapes’ Bellaforté Shake now comes in the three colors from the company’s Nature Crafted Collection: Black Oak (shown), Aged Cedar, and Mossy Cedar, in addition to five other colors, three being offered with DaVinci's Cool Roof technology. Cool Roof colors are premium blends designed to reflect sunlight and heat away, meeting the Title 24 requirements for California residents. These composite shake tiles are made to resist hail, impact, fire, and decay, as well as splitting, cracking, fading, and curling, according to the company. They’re also made to resist mold, fungus, algae, and insects. The high-quality, reasonably priced shake shingles come with a lifetime limited materials warranty.

lp smartside



LP’s SmartSide Panel Siding is an engineered wood product offered in four different profiles: cedar texture panel, smooth finish panel, cedar texture vertical, and smooth finish vertical. LP says the product offers greater impact resistance than vinyl and fiber cement in addition to resistance to fungal decay and termites. In addition, the panels come in 16-foot lengths, showing fewer seams, which results in a clean look. Select SmartSide products come in 16 prefinished colors. The products come with a transferable limited warranty of up to five years for labor and material replacement and a 50-year prorated limited warranty. 

environmental stoneworks

Environmental StoneWorks


Grezzo stone veneer siding from Environmental StoneWorks combines a manufactured stone performance with a natural stone look. It balances a modern aesthetic with a feeling of texture and depth, making it a perfect fit for this project. The mortared-in-place veneer looks like real stone but is actually made from concrete, so it costs less. Stones are available in a variety of sizes that can be mixed and matched to create custom patterns. 


TAMKO Building Products


TAMKO Building Products' Titan XT and StormFighter IR in the Heritage Proline shingles series offer fast, easy shingle installation, they feature a reinforced common bond, expanded nailing zone, enhanced sealants, and top coating, and high-wind warranty. The “XT” in Titan XT stands for extreme technology; StormFighter IR has the industry’s highest impact rating. Able to withstand 160-mph winds, it qualified for UL 2218 Class 4 Impact Rating. StormFighter IR is offered in areas of the country with the most demanding hail and wind combinations.




Tando introduces a new architectural sill and sill corner, to complement TandoStone composite stone. Created with a slope forward to move water away from a structure, the products offer the realistic look and feel of natural stone. Available in three colors (Pewter, Raven and Sable), the architectural sill and sill corner are designed to add curb appeal to any exterior — and quick, easy installation. Tando is a brand of Derby Building Products.


Versetta Stone


The mortarless Versetta Stone Ledgestone Style stone siding panels offer a traditional, dry-stack appearance with an easy installation with screws or nails. Its staggered layers and rough-cut appearance balance other exterior materials in remodels including brick, stucco, and wood. Besides reducing installer fatigue, the lightweight panels also provide durability and can withstand extreme weather such as freezes, thaws, winds, and heat. Panels come in six colors, including Northern Ash, a trendy dark gray.

vented soffit

Westlake Building Products


Westlake Royal Building Products added 6” Vented Soffit to its Cedar Renditions line of aluminum siding last year. Available in the United States and Canada, it’s perforated for ventilation and designed to keep moisture out of the home while remaining moisture-proof with little to no maintenance. It comes in premium, multi-tonal wood grain colors and traditional wood grain colors. Designed to be used with the existing 6” Cedar Renditions siding profile, it’s backed by a 25-year prorated limited warranty.




Daltile’s Tread line features 2 centimeter outdoor porcelain pavers in wood, quartzite, assorted stone, slate, French limestone and Belgian bluestone looks. These pavers resist stains, fading, scratches, fire and slips. The line consists of six collections: Assemble, a contemporary stone-look paver (shown) and Commissary, a natural wood-look paver, plus existing porcelain pavers that are now part of the Tread line: Ambassador, Diplomacy, Delegate and Dignitary.
